2021 Fantasy Outlook
LeMahieu eclipsed his superb first season in New York with a better one, posting a career-best .364/.421/.590 slash line, claiming the AL batting crown and finishing third on the MVP ballot. His 177 wRC+ ranked fourth in the league, and bested both players (Jose Ramirez and Jose Abreu) who finished ahead of him in the voting. He ranked third among qualified batters with an 89.9 Contact% while posting the second-best strikeout rate (9.7%). LeMahieu's barrel rate (2.9%) and average launch angle (2.3 degrees) hardly resemble that of a power hitter, but he took advantage of the Yankee Stadium right-field short-porch -- his 361-foot average HR distance was third-lowest in MLB -- to post a career-best 19.5 AB/HR. Replicating that rate is far from guaranteed, even after signing a long-term deal to stay in New York, but his bat-to-ball skills are elite and make LeMahieu one of baseball's most reliable hitters.
